I'm way behind on updates, so please forgive me for the late comment.
I don't see what you're talking about, not looking good. But, if it looked great just before you saved it, then it became... degraded looking, perhaps saving the image as a .PNG file would help. .JPEG/.JPG degrades the quality to lower the image size on your hard drive, and thus, wherever you decide to upload it.
Did you use the Dallas Skyline for this? That's totally awesome. That, and that balloon is extremely durable. Woo for Texas.[/pride]
Oh, by the way, how goes the request?
